Supporting young children's language development

Improving children's speaking and listening skills has never been more important, and this book considers the significant role that the physical environment can play in supporting these skills. It includes a summary of the key environmental influences, drawn from research, and lots of examples of what this looks like in practice.

Outside is such a preferred context for so many children. The ideas in this book will inspire you to review your outside spaces and make sure they are the kinds of places where young children will develop their language skills.
